Welcome

Hello and Welcome to the Purple Poppy Wellness website! Being a bit of a technophobe I can’t tell you how happy it made me to even be able to type that first sentence.

Located just 22 miles outside of Glasgow in my hometown of Beith, I am a mobile therapist with clients in various locations between Glasgow and Ayrshire.

In the beginning Purple Poppy Wellness was a way for me to share my passion for Aromatherapy and Natural Skincare but since 2017 it has become so much more… hands on therapies, group workshops and much, much more.

If you would like to find out more about the services that we offer please head over the Services page or for What’s new, check out the latest Blog. Or, if you would like to find out a little bit more about me then you will find that in the About page.

Please feel free to leave me feedback or comments on anything that you see on these pages, feedback on services is greatly appreciated. If you want to ask me something directly then please head to the Contact Us section and drop me a wee message.

Thanks for visiting, Gillian.

The name

My Mother was always my biggest supporter, encouraging me to continue on this path and share “my gifts” with other people.  So when it came time to pick and name I chose the Poppy, her favourite flower.  Living in London for almost 8 years made me quite patriotic so I also wanted to include the Thistle.  I began drawing sketches of a logo, wanting to put my heart and soul into this venture I surrounded the words in a heart.  I gave this rough sketch to my good friend (Amar Ingreji) and with some of his editorial talent the Purple Poppy Scotland logo was born.

Not to be confused with the fantastic animal charity Purple Poppy, which raises money for animals injured during times of war.

In 2020, while the world was in lockdown, my business evolved and grew to offer a wider range of Wellness solutions. Purple Poppy Wellness felt like a more appropriate name.
